There’s a dire need for sustainable alternatives so that we humans can lower our carbon footprint on the planet. However, cars are one of the major contributors to the rising pollution levels and while there are other modes of transport available, many people still prefer to use cars for intra-city transport. The e-mobility startup Bird wants to change this by offering e-scooters for transportation, which are not only easily accessible and safe, but also less harmful for the environment.
Bird started off as a US-based startup and later attained the status of a ‘Unicorn’. It offers dockless electric scooters to its users via a vehicle sharing platform. The current key issue with using an e-scooter is finding the vehicle via its GPS on the map, which can be a hit or a miss.
